What To Expect

Why choose between an American tour of Niagara Falls or a Canadian one? A proper visit to Niagara Falls includes activities on both sides of the border. This tour takes care of that important detail.

Get things started on the right foot with a convenient hotel pickup (from Niagara Falls area) in a comfortable sightseeing vehicle, complete with an expert guide who knows everything there is to know about Niagara Falls.

This day trip to Niagara Falls hits all the hot spots of the area.

What more can be said about the Maid of the Mist boat cruise? This is the ultimate Niagara Falls activity and no trip to the falls is complete without it. Grab a poncho and get up close and personal with the falls. Feel the cool spray and the powerful sounds of the water. This is the experience of a lifetime for those taking the tour between late April and October.

Outside of those dates, take an equally exciting “Journey Behind the Falls” to explore the scenic tunnels below and behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Make no mistake—this is as close to the falls as anyone wants to be. The sound is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand back, or in this case stand just close enough to feel the power. It’s exhilarating.

Other stops on this tour include the Niagara Gorge, Goat Island, Prospect Point Park observation tower overlooking the falls, Queen Victoria Park, and the famous Floral Clock, one of the largest in the world.

Please note: The Maid of the Mist tour departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers booking this tour must have appropriate documentation to enter the United States and Canada.

All in one
Caroline_W, Sept 2023
The maid on the mist was amazing although a little damp. The film show was most informative, allowing you to take in the history of the falls. The guide,Eduardo was so accommodating , making sure everyone was enjoying the trip and giving the benefit of his knowledge.
The most efficient tour for Niagra Falls during the daytime!
Karen_F, Sept 2023
This was the absolute best tour I could have taken to see everything (during the day) related to Niagra Falls. This tour has the most efficient use of our time for the day. Randy was our tour guide. He was fabulous and extremely knowledgeable of the area. Randy had the best suggestions for things to do after our day tour was complete. Have your passport ready so you can see both sides of the falls. You won't regret it!

I enjoyed the majority of the day. The elevator on the cave of the winds malfunctioned which got us stuck for awhile. Not fun. The multiple views of the falls were fantastic. The driver was entertaining and knowligible.

Great way to see the area during our first trip to Niagara Falls. Jessica was the best! She had a way to beat the crowd everywhere we went, getting us there just before the rush. We appreciated the tips on how to stay “dry” at Cave of the Winds. Highly recommend this experience.

David was a great driver and leader. I loved it all. Especially Maid of the mist and The cave of the winds. Spectacular! Not the biggest fan of where we all ate lunch. But the rest was amazing!
Totally Worth It!
Joy_E, Sept 2023
I think this is the best way to see the falls. Noman was an excellent guide and knew just how to get us everywhere with the best timing. We had plenty of time at each stop and he provided some great information along the way.

Our guide, David was phenomenal. He kept our group well informed of the history and other valuable information. He kept us on schedule for the entire 7 hour tour which went by rapidly. The maid of the mist tour will be a memory of a lifetime. This experience was monumental.
